Moral Mazes in yet another band in the long line of Jonah Matranga projects. This one harkens back to his Far days. The band also features Jeff Dean of All Eyes West and Dead Ending fame, Darren Zentek of Office Of Future Plans fame and J. Robbins of Jawbox and Government Issue fame.

The band’s debut release, a 7”, is entitled Magic Tommy Jackson, and features two songs. Bridge 9 Records released the 7”, pressing it on different colors; white limited to 200 copies and blue limited to 300 copies. The jacket, yes jacket, as it’s not a fold over sleeve for this 7”, is screen printed rather than going for a glossy or straight up matte finish. It’s a nice touch for this release that B9 doesn’t advertise, and they still charge a very reasonable $5 for it. The cover art is a collage type drawing of the faces of Magic Johnson, Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson, adding in a bit of hilarity to this 7”. If you don’t get it then nobody can help you.

An important note about this 7”; a download card/code is not included with the actual 7”. But all is not lost. Instead of the traditional slip of paper included with the actual 7”, B9 has it set up so you can redeem a download for the release on your order confirmation page after checking out in the B9 store. So don’t delete your order confirmation email, otherwise it will take some awkward emails where you come out looking stupid in order to gain access to the MP3’s.Moral Mazes - Magic Tommy Jackson - Copy
